government programs, they often think of medicare. but medicaid, the nation's health insurance for low-income americans, actually covers more people. it covers children, the disabled and the elderly. here's how matt, who heads the national association of medicaid directors, explains it. >> it's incredibly important. we cover... medicaid covers 62 million americans. we cover 40% of the births in this country. we cover the majority of publicly funded long-term care services not medicare. we cover the majorty of h.i.v./aids treatment, the majority of mental health treatment. anywhere you look for a safety net, medicaid is generally there. >> sreenivasan: medicaid is run by the state through rules set by washington. although it varies from state to state the federal government on average pays nearly 60% of the cost. the states pay the rest. those costs along with its prominent role in the federal health care reform law has inserted medicaid firmly into the middle of the presidential campaign. >> i put forward a detailed plan that would reform and strengthen medicare and medicaid. >> i woul
